Superb Family Law Attorney
This review is way overdue. First, I wanted to wait until my case was officially closed (June 2019), then I just needed time to decompress and get my mind, straight, and get away from all the chaos and turmoil. I knew I had to have the right mindset, because I would be remembering everything again, and was not quite ready for all of that, until now. Mrs. Erdmann represented me in my family law case/custody issues, from 2008 to 2015. She was my 4th attorney, and my best attorney. My entire case divorce/custody case went from 2003-2019. Yes, it was constant, I believe I went to court 34 times during that timeframe, not to mention the mediations and the three court appointed counselors. My issues stemmed from physical, emotional, verbal, and mental abuse, of my child, as well as parental alienation, not to mention constant violations of the Parenting Agreement, by the other parent. I was not doing this for me, or for revenge, it was about protecting my child, and trying to provide him with an as normal life as possible, considering the chaos and turmoil. My ex was characterized by our marriage counselor, her personal therapist, and one of our court-appointed therapists, to have the characteristics of a narcissist, borderline personality disorder, and a sociopath. That is pretty much all you need to know, to understand what my child, and I, went through on a daily basis, if not hourly basis. Some characteristics describing Mrs. Erdmann, would be: • Knowledgeable of the Law • Great Communication Skills • Responsiveness • Patience • Great Listening Skills • Hardworking and Persevering • Compassionate • Connects with the client and the case • Passionate • Creative Ideas • Truthful, Insightful • Persevere-we may have lost a couple battles, but we won the war I was not always the easiest client. I may have been a jerk sometimes, impatient, and a pain in the behind, but it never seemed to outwardly effect Mrs. Erdmann, or our client/lawyer relationship. I think one of the most important things that really applied to our case, was that Mrs. Erdmann had a degree in Psychology, and she had a true understanding of people and their behaviors. The way I was acting was not malicious or personal, it was my frustration with the behaviors of the other parent, the courts, and just the entire process. First, she could see that what I was telling her about my ex’s behaviors was legit, because of her education and experience. My previous attorneys just explained it off as ex’s always think the other one has mental health issues, but in my case, I was 100% truthful, and three therapists, that provided statements, confirmed it. The courts ignored the therapists and our three requests for psychological evaluations. So, as a man battling a biased family court system, with a manipulative and untruthful other parent, it took a lot of persistence and perseverance to keep going. In closing, words do not convey the eternal gratitude I have towards Mrs. Erdmann, she not only helped me protect my son, but she got me 50/50 custody that minimized the unstable behaviors my son experienced while with the other parent, and it allowed him to become such an amazing young man. Mrs. Erdmann is a big part of why my son turned out the way he did. She fought for him, and for me, to try and have as normal of a Dad-Son relationship as we could, while battling a very toxic and high conflict co-parenting situation. Oh, and by the way, the last six years of our custody agreement, Mrs. Erdmann got my ex to pay me child support. If nothing else confirms how good Mrs. Erdmann is, as a family law attorney, that, should do it. It is unheard-of for a man to receive child support, especially in the state of Maryland, and the biases towards fathers. Mrs. Erdmann has my undying gratitude. I highly recommend her, without question. Everything stated here is my opinion, based on my experience, in my situation.

Excellent attorney
If you want a lawyer that tells you what you want to hear, Lindsey is not your woman. However, if you want an attorney that is smart, diligent, well-versed in the law, and provides spot-on advice, then look no further. After working on my divorce 6 years ago, and again on a successful custody modification this year, I could not recommend her more highly. Lindsey will always steer you in the right direction. I'm glad I heeded her advice!

A very good atterney
I hired Lindsey Erdmann for my divorce case since the end of 2012, she helped me finished the more than 4 years divorce battle, and helped me won the $2,500/month alimony. During this very frustrated period, she provided me excellent guidance and support, she helped me went thru many difficult court days. I just want to say: Thank you so much!

Mislead Through the Entire Process
After being recommended to Ms. Erdmann by an attorney I trust, I met with Ms. Erdmann for a consultation and was told my ex had no basis for her demands. 100% custody and half of everything accrued since marriage. I was asking for 50% custody. I retained Lindsey in August with a court date in January. Throughout this time I had to contact her if she needed any information for the case as my ex and I could not reach an agreement. In the week leading up to the case I finally started to hear from Lindsey who was talking to my ex's attorney at this point. She didn't seem very prepared for the demands my ex was asking for. Upon the day of the trial, our case was delayed and the two attorneys began to discuss a settlement agreement. She clearly did not want to go to trial. I had no reason to not obtain 50% custody. But as a settlement was discussed, Ms. Erdmann told me my mom (the primary day care) was ready to testify against me that I should not have custody. I said this didn't make any sense, but she assured me this was the case. I did not want any witnesses as I didn't want to get anyone involved in this divorce. Upon hearing this I figured I had no chance to win anything in court and gave up hope. We ultimately settled on the 1/7 days custody. After court I asked my ex why she would have my mom testify against me. She said that never happened and asked her attorney why he would say that. He said he didn't. I asked Ms. Erdmann to clarify what exactly happened and she insisted he said this. No follow up that I am aware of. It was a huge issue. The money that I had in the house or that I had paid my ex previously did not account for anything and Ms. Erdmann did not fight for anything. She said since we didn't go to trial I would get $3,000 back of my retainer. After months of seeing the fee decline I asked what had happened and was sent a check for $1,500. I am now in the process of hiring another attorney to fight for my custody.

Family Attorney | Jun 25
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Lindsey and I tried a three or four day child custody case as opposing counsel. She is a very skilled trial lawyer and very well prepared. She is also very reasonable when trying to settle a case, and I can say from having seen her billing statements in that case, that her bills are fair and reasonable as well."
Family Attorney | Aug 14
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Not only have Lindsey and I been opposing counsel on matters, we both clerked for the same family law judge in Prince George's County. Her knowledge of the law (family law and estate planning, particularly) and dedication to her clients is the best I have ever seen. She is the hardest working attorney I know. I endorse this lawyer."
